Bubbles

It's Real Kids Thursday.
Remember when the world was new? Children are literally seeing things with fresh eyes. So much is unfamiliar and without context. That can make what they encounter more intensely beautiful, or funny, or frightening. For a child, opening a picture book can be a time of discovery--a rich experience. They are looking to explore a world inside that strikes a balance between the familiar and the surprising. Why are bubbles so interesting to children? They shine, they have an elegant wholeness, and they're somewhat unpredictable. Like a picture book.
